It’s never an easy chore to win when “up a condition” off a win, but this Bluegrass Cat filly does bring in consecutive top efforts in first level Allowance races over this very surface. She is also the lone entrant in this field that is cutting back a full furlong (6f to 5f) and this can only play in her favor in the late stages. Plus One prefers to call the shots on the lead, but importantly has also shown she can close the deal from a stalking position as well. A bullet June 19 workout in :48.1 would suggest she is still in the mood.
This Elusive Quality filly stopped badly in her debut just 10 days ago to be beaten 15 lengths. In all fairness, she drew the rail that day and was sent very hard from the moment the gates opened setting swift fractions of :22.1 and :45.2. Today she draws an outside post where her rider can allow her to use her speed when he wants, and it should prove to be a much more accurate bill as to what her true abilities are.
